A Little curiosity from the 50s - a Dorothy Gray Cosmetics commercial, advertising a new face cream that'll remove ANYTHING from your face. That's right! Anything. To prove it, they use a radioactive tracer in the dirt to see just how much dirt the cold cream removes. You'll be astounded with the results! Wonder if that model is still alive.

|Your Hit Parade - May 2, 1951 (Music/Variety)|
An episode of "Your Hit Parade", a music-themed TV series in which the cast performed the hit songs of the week and a couple of "extras". This episode is a bit of a "off-episode", not up to usual standards. Songs include: "Mockin Bird Hill", "Sparrow in the Treetops", "Be My Love", "How High the Moon", "On Top of Old Smoky" (a dreadful rendition), "Would I Love You" and "If". Some severe sound issues during the closing credits and Lucky Strike jingle.

|The Emperor Presents Dorothy Collins - Matthew Paul Argall|
Just some video I (Argall) edited together, with clips of Dorothy Collins singing songs on the "Your Hit Parade" series, as well as a few of her Lucky Strike commercials. Yes, I realise this video has a silly title...but it's a catchy title, much like some of the songs she sings. (note: while the "Your Hit Parade" TV series is public domain, the compositions she performs are still copyrighted. So maybe not a wise idea to upload it to YouTube)
